Industry experts for managing power generating units

Fossil plants are increasingly adapting to more flexible operations as gas prices remain low and renewable power generation becomes more widespread. Unfortunately, many plants are not equipped to handle the frequent start-ups, shutdowns, and transitions in a way that optimises profitability.

Coal sector plants are typically following load rather than running at base load. This cycling thermally stresses plants more and contributes to forced outages, higher maintenance costs, and lost revenue. With these increased stresses, smaller operations struggle to operate and maintain a plant’s assets effectively.

Emerson’s power industry experts work with companies to mitigate the effects of cycling, as well as improve coal plant availability and profitability. The company can provide staff with the insight to resolve problems as they arise and not when failures occur. This includes problems with boiler operation, steam turbines, balance of plant operations, heat recovery steam generators, and combustion turbines.

Control systems for the renewables sector

Power companies around the world are developing renewable resources to diversify generation sources and help reduce emissions. Emerson provides solutions to enable power generators in this sector to operate plants at peak performance.

Emerson’s Ovation control system has been successfully applied in a variety of geothermal plant installations, microgrids, hydroelectric plants, solarpower generation processes, biomass installations, and windfarms.

Measurement solutions for the safe operation of nuclear facilities

Emerson applies decades of technology expertise to ensure the effective, dependable, and secure operation of next-generation nuclear plants worldwide.

Emerson has supported the nuclear business with well-established measurement solutions for more than 40 years. Our fully analogue pressure transmitter series offers complete accident profile analysis and performance specifications to meet stringent safety-related conditions for all reactor types.

The company also provides nuclear process control valves and actuators, in addition to nuclear-qualified solenoid valves, which are designed for environments with high-radiation, temperature, and seismic requirements.

Training and security threat protection technology for power plants

Emerson helps clients to operate their plants effectively and efficiently. Our skilled workforce uses high-quality technology to strengthen growing teams through first-rate training.

Cybersecurity is another key area where Emerson can help its customers in the power generation industry.

Emerson supplies cybersecurity products and services for power plants and fleets, providing clients with protection against increasing internal and external threats within water / wastewater management facilities. Cybersecurity programmes help secure systems and achieve compliance.

Emerson’s cybersecurity solutions support North American Electric Reliability Corporation critical infrastructure protection (NERC CIP) compliance and best practices, including the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) cybersecurity framework, International Society for Automation (ISA) 99, and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 62443.
